Discover your true identity

In Adam or in Christ. Don’t let past define you. Don’t be chained to the past.  2Cor 5:16-17 Old things have passed away. Lam 3:22-23 New every morning.  Prov 23:7 As a man thinks in his heart. Loser, stupid. 1Cor 15:33 Evil company corrupts. Who do I hang out with? Those that understand their identity in Christ or losers? Who do I identify with? Racial group, felons, high school dropouts.  Not the same person I was. New passport. Old identity went to the cross. 

Mat 3:17, 4:3 Temptation in the desert. God says, “Is”, devil says, “If”. Devil is right around the corner to test you.  Gideon: mighty man. Num 13:33 grasshoppers. Others will see you the same as you see yourself. Insecurity, fear, doubt. Who speaks into your life during the week. They want you to justify their viewpoint. You won’t be happy in the world. 

Col 2:13-15 New Century: “When you were spiritually dead because of your sins and because you were not free from the power of your sinful self, God made you alive with Christ, and he forgave all our sins. He canceled the debt, which listed all the rules we failed to follow. He took away that record with its rules and nailed it to the cross. God stripped the spiritual rulers and powers of their authority. With the cross, he won the victory and showed the world that they were powerless.”

When you allow things to die in your life, God’s resurrection power can work.   The cross takes the past away. Sponge. Nailed to the cross: unforgiveness, inferiority, fear, lack, pride, bitterness. Daily live that revelation.
